Gun clubs are wrapping up for Christmas break
IT IS the time of year when things start to get a little quieter on Charleville’s shooting ranges, with Christmas celebrations and final shoots in the works around the end of this month.
Charleville Clay Target Club was the first to host its get-together, which included shooters decked out in Santa suits and a wealth of festivities for members and their families.
In total, 43 shooters hit the range, including some who had travelled to join in on the day’s action.
There is another big year in the works for Charleville’s clay target shooters, as the club continues to grow.
This weekend it is the Small Bore Rifle Club’s turn to host an end-of-year gathering, with members and non-members all welcome on Sunday, December 2.
For the occasion, all the necessary rifles and ammo are being made available, meaning the only thing required is a keen attitude.
It will be the ideal way of winding down from a big year for these sharp shooters too, who had the honour of hosting an annual shoot which drew competitors from Brisbane.
